How tough to replace caliper on 2004 FX4?

Looking for any good instruction on how to replace a left rear caliper on my FX4.

Is it as simple as removing the 1 bolt and putting the new one on? I am having to replace because I sheared off the friggin bleeder valve. I am going to try and back it out, but thought I would get a jump on instruction on removing rear caliper.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah. It's shear off flush with the caliper. I'm going to try and back it out with some bits that I have. If that doesn't work I am looking at installing a new caliper.

Luckily though the bleeder never opened and I can still drive around.

As far as I can tell the rears look very simple. I connection on the caliper.

Didn't know if there were any gotchas in replacing these.

some heat and a easy out bit will probably do the trick. soak it in p.b blaster beforehand.if they are like the 97-03 calipers should be pretty easy. id try to get that bleeder out first though. a new bleeder screw is alot cheaper than a caliper so....
